**I'm sorry to those looking for my blogfest entry: I didn't have time to make it out. Please forgive my poor planning.**
How many days has it been? It feels like forever since it started and I look forward and there's still a while to go. LOL Open Mic on Friday was fantastic- we had a really good turnout with some singers, short stories (I read one of mine) and poetry (I read some of my poetry too). My best friend came with and she even read one of her pieces. So I really enjoyed this event. It's inspiring. The next one is November 19th, and I'm going to have to write new stuff for it...Hmmm
